Easy to use and reliable


This washing machine was purchased new in 2006 for $549 and has worked well with no problems ever since. It is easy to use and has been very reliable. Good value.

Reliable and easy to use but leaves a lot of lint on clothes.


I have had no mechanical problems at all with the machine in over 8 years. It is easy to use and simple to understand. But it does leave a lot of lint on the clothes. There is no lint filter and the only parts to clean are the bowl and the agitator....

Reliable and Easy to use.

Leaves a lot of lint on clothes to the point that I cannot wash white or light coloured clothes in the machine.

great machine!


This has been a very reliable machine, we have had for 5 years and still had absolutely no problems. It has been worked hard, having at least a 4 person household at all times (4 adults, then 4 adults and bub, now 2 adult, toddler and baby) it washes...

reliable, inexpensive.

Washes clothes OK. But.....


It does the job of washing clothes, can't argue about that. The big problem is that it goes out of balance very easily, perhaps every third wash or so, and constantly beeps until this is manually corrected. Apart from that it works well, but the...

Looks modern. High spin speed.

Those [censored word removed] beeps when it goes out of balance are annoying, and it goes out of balance rather often.

17 years of service


Maybe the model numbers have changed over the years but the 5.5kg washing machine I purchased over 17 years ago is just beginning to have problems. I can still use it - just have to juggle the programs. Am very impressed with the durability of this...

Have had this washing machine for about 5 years and no problem, works well, doesn't damage clothes and is pretty quiet. Fisher and Paykel are good quality, better than aussie brands, which are made o/s anyway... Its pretty quiet, has a good choice of...

Flaw in this model - spinning


My previous Hoover machine lasted me a loyal 14 yrs without any issue. After using F&P MW512 for 2 yrs, the spinning cycle seems to show a flaw - it either doesn't stopped or get jammed so often which drove me crazy - now after only 5 2/2 yrs - it...

Stick with the old technology machines!


Have been living with this machine for the last 4 years and have been near my wits end with it! Its been a love / hate relationship - pipes exploding, beeping, blinking and complete utter frustration... I've had to replace hoses 4 times with this...

Light to move from house to house

pipes exploding, beeping, blinking and complete utter frustration

Absolute Rubbish, has to be placed on the bottom of anyones buy list


As mentioned above, the unit is 5 years old but was placed in good clean dry storage for 4.5 of those years. Consistant problems, the latest being the motor controller needs replacing. (choke overheating)I traced it down to a faulty chip on the "B"...

It seemed cheap at the time

Whats right with it?
